Rialto Mercato, near Rialto Bridge, is an area with major daily markets which was both the major food sources for the locals and a major tourist attraction. The two markets there are Erberia (greengrocery market) which opens from 7:30am to 1 pm, Monday to Saturday, and the Pescheria (fish market), which operates from during the same time, but only from Tuesday through Saturday.

several times, before the major tourist crowds flooded the markets.

Erbaria had different flavors altogether, less flashy, less exotic but winning with its startlingly fresh offerings:
Vegetables and fruits never looked so good!
